Hi,

Can anyone assist me with the descendants of John WALTER (b.1739 London. d. 1812). His son, John Jr. was born 1776. d. 7 May 1841. He took over ownership of the newspaper. I am trying to trace all the descendants of John Snr. Please contact me if you can help. Thank you.

I saw your message and wondered if you had any success.  I am writing a book about John Walter III (grandson of the founder of the Times) and his son, John Balston Walter, and would love to get in contact with their descendents to find out any family lore that they could tell me about them.

Are you still looking for this?  Have you had any luck?  I am a descendant of John Walter:

 I would be happy to give you more information about the other descendants in my family.  

I have found the banns of John's marriage and his marriage certificate, and the names of his mother (Richard) and his mother (Esther, no maiden name found), but like others I have hit a brick wall after that.  If anyone has any more informatin, I would be very grateful.

Hi Catherine.  Can you help me at all.  I am writing a book about John Walter III and his son John Balston Walter.  I would like to get in contact with any of their descendents who could tell me about life at Bearwood and John's brother Arthur.  I appreciate that this is a slightly different branch of the family, but any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.  Tim

Would like to be in contact with you, as I have the Family Tree of John, done by a descendant. I too, am supposed to be a descendant, but have hit a brick wall.

Can send you a copy of the Tree.

 Hi,

I am not a Walter descendant, but they married into my wider family. The rumour persists within the family that John WALTER (b. 5/9/1835 England– d.31/5/1922 Sydney, NSW) is a descendant of John WALTER who founded the London Times (but I have my doubts). His father is shown as John Thomas and mother is Mary Anne GUDGEON. I was going to attach a family group sheet, but apparently it won't accept a word.doc attachment. Can you confirm or refute this rumour? Where do you fit in the Walter clan? If you send me your email address I will send more information via virus free attachments. My email is pittskevin@hotmail.com. Please show subject as WALTER research. Thank you.
